    F2L Trainer Interest Check

    Hello everyone ! I have recently been looking for a F2L trainer to help me improve my efficiency, but haven’t been able to find exactly what I was looking for. So I thought, if it doesn’t exist, why don’t you make it? Before throwing myself head first into this, I wanted to ask you fellow...

    Cross to F2L transition tips?

    I average around 26 seconds. My cross takes around 6 seconds, f2l takes around 10, oll takes 3.5 and pll takes 3.5. That all adds up to around 23 seconds. Thing is, I have an akward pause in between cross and f2l. I'll do cross, look around for 2-4 seconds for 1st pair then my solves flow pretty...

    [Unofficial] Rotationless F2L 14.82 ao5

    Did this for fun. Here someone asked the optimal rotations in f2l so I thought why not do an optimal rotation f2l? aka zero rotations in f2l and then I just made this video on a whim. Read the description in the video for more information :)

    Beginners F2L: 3 easy steps for every case

    Like most people when I was learning F2L, I just went online to figure out how to do it. After watching numerous tutorials on how it was done I had finally got it. During this time I found that if some things had been explained a little differently it would have helped tremendously in...

    F2L: 2 looks per pair

    When I was a new cuber, I thought that F2L was very difficult. There were 42 algs to learn. That's a lot of algs for a beginner. In february of this year, I began the F2L, but learned only 8 algs. With 8 algs, I could do every F2L case. If you have the edge and separate corner , you can join...

    I feel like a failure

    I have been cubing for 6-7 weeks now, and I can't get lower than a one minute average. But that's not the bad part. I have memorized 4 look last layer, I know intuitive F2l, and I have been practice constantly. Yet is still have this awful split of : 10-30-10-10 (cross-f2l-oll-pll)

    Tips on F2L?

    I can't seem to do it right. (btw my times are 30-40 seconds but its kinda redundant as i ONLY learned f2l, no OLL (I made my own memory-thing thats like a 3look OLL), and 2-look PLL. I'm too lazy to learn the other 2 since im working on f2l. Any tips? I memorized none of the f2l algorithims, so...

    Any decent intuitive F2L tutorials?

    Yeah basically the title. I tried to learn intuitive F2L but none of the tutorials really helped me. I think I just don'lt understand the concept of moving the cube without ruining the white cross, positioning the two layers correctly, and still doing it in a minimal amount of turns.

    F2L with minimal cube rotations

    So there have been a few discussions on this ( here and here ) but they are almost a decade old I'm pretty satisfied with my times and am taking step back to experiment with some new tricks. Instead of rotating the cube on F2L I'm trying to do only d and d' moves. There are some exceptions to...

    Keyhole F2L Problem

    I'm learning keyhole F2L, but I wonder what I should do if all the middle layer edges are already in the middle layer but not in the correct position. Should I just move one of the middle layer edges to the top layer using the keyhole and then move on from there?

    New to speed cubing, looking for a first cube

    Hello, I started cubing a little less than 3 months ago, and have gotten faster and faster since then. I use a new rubik's cube (version 2.0?) that can be found in Target or Walmart, and have gotten an avg. of 5 of 1 min 29 sec, and a PB of 1 min 15 using the beginners method. But I feel like I...
